Description: Wiera has a
dark greyish skin, rust-coloured hair and brown eyes. She is quite
voluptuous but since that is a common thing with the mermaids she doesn't
stand out much. From the waist down, her human upper body connects to a
soft to the touch but strong and smooth tail, similar to that of a
dolphin. The fins at her tail and ears are slightly lighter in colour than
the rest of her body.
Personality: Wiera is a social, fun-loving mermaid who just can't
say no to shiny things. She often looks for treasures in sunken ships or
observes humans on the beach. She isn't intent on making trouble, but she
often loses sights of safety and common sense while she gets excited which
lands her into trouble a lot.
Short Bio: Wiera was born to a common mer couple, her mother died
while she was young and she was raised by her father and aunts. Her
inquiring mind was evident from a young age but never put to much use
which meant that she started seeking her own way and with no-one to guide
her this made her alienate her family a bit because they are trying to
hold her back for her own good.
Skills: Quick thinker.
Hobbies: exploring shipwrecks, looking for shiny objects.
Bond: Wheke-Octodragon Tecad-Anyaythlis'Refugium
(f) from the Refugium
The announcement that the Mermay Mini Frenzy was hatching came during one
of the many events the Refugium had organised to entertain the waiting
candidates and sponsors. About half the spectators and several members on
either side of the hydroball court scrambled to get to where they needed
to be, leaving the rest of the people to either follow to watch the big
event or go home.
The hatching grounds were abuzz with more activity than usual. Only a few
clutch parents were visible above the surf; the glenn dragon mother
carefully guarding her nest of eggs, wreathed in seaweed and sat between
the crags of a rocky outcrop. The asandus mother and her fiery mate,
chasing around their clumsy-footed liveborn offspring as they nagged
Zeskod for extra treats from the feeding tables. The other parents
appeared as silhouettes or bobbing heads just above the surface of the
Though the parents were different species and had laid eggs at different
times, somehow the hatchlings inside knew that the time was there to hatch
or be left behind. One after the other the eggs started rocking as the
race to find the optimal bond or sponsor began.
A leopard-spotted blue wheke-ika watched her intended from behind a patch
of fronds. It had taken her some time to decide upon a proper bond and she
didn't want to be influenced by the utterings of her siblings. She
examined and analyzed all the waterborn candidates that swam passed her
little hidey hole.
The most intriguing clues were some comments made from a merman and his
recently bonded barroti-asandus.
An adventurous mermaid who loved hunting for treasure? That sounded like
just the right person for her!
There weren't any ruins to explore in the oceanic biodome, but that didn't
seem to stop Wiera from searching. The wheke-ika hatchling had tracked her
for a while, waiting for the best moment. Wiera approached the patch of
weeds she was hidden in, gently prying them open to reveal the little
:: I think I'm the treasure you're looking for
today. :: she said, beaming. :: I'm Tecad and
I've been waiting for you to find me. ::
2nd Name: Oceans Sings A Thousand Songs
Species: 1/2 Wheke-Ika, 1/2 Miirusian Octodragon
Adult Length: 49'
Abilities: telepathy, underwater breathing, water magic,
teleportation, echolocation, gravity manipulation, ice magic
Personality: Tecad loves mystery. She's secretive and coy, flirting
with the idea of danger without ever really endangering herself. She
enjoys adventures and treasure seeking just fine, but nothing is quite as
exciting as solving a mystery. She has an analytical mind, en eye for
detail, and excellent deduction skills. Very little gets passed her keen
perception. Tecad is usually quiet and soft-spoken, but she loves to
Pok and Wiera had returned to their home-ocean after their seadragons had
matured enough to be able to use their abilities without a worry of stuff
getting blown up or displaced. Despite adding two dragons to their lives,
they'd fallen back into quite predictable patterns.
"Wiera is late for dinner again." Plerennus
Pok sighed despite Plerennus' chuckle as he continued: "She's
got Tecad with her. She can make it back within a single second."
"Which is probably why she's been getting later and later." Pok
answered, "Why are her parents even worried about her? She's got a
dragon keeping her safe."
"Mothers shall worry?"
"I guess that must be it." Pok resigned himself and headed out
to tell Wiera it was time for dinner.
At that time, Wiera was fin-deep into some sunken treasure. The coins had
decomposed to razor-sharp disks but they still held some luster. Which was
why she'd lost track of time. Tecad could have told her. Would have told
her, if only the blue dragoness with the many tentacles was lost in the
mystery of why a treasure was here without a shipwreck.
"They must have dumped the contents
overboard." she concluded, "But
why? Because they needed to hide evidence of a theft? or to keep it save
from thieves? Or could there be another reason...."
It was around that time that Plerennus and Pok found the duo. Pok had to
touch Wiera before she even noticed the merman was around.
"It's time to go home." Pok said and glared at Tecad: "You
could have told her the time."
Tecad blinked innocently and said: "I think
she might be doing this on purpose so you can come find her."
Plerennus laughed, causing air bubbles to disturb the deep waters,
"Maybe she has a point." the fiery dragon told his bond.
Wiera started shaking her head and opened her mouth to disagree but Tecad
interrupted her before she could talk:
"I do believe the lady protests too
"Shalala, kiss the girl." Plerennus
sang and pushed his bond into the lovely mermaid.
Unable to avoid contact, Pok did just that.
"I thought you'd never do that." Wiera remarked with a smile
that told him he might have just been played.
